Man With 10 Different Personalities Is Unable to Leave House by Himself

A 22-year-old German man suffering from a rare form of dissociative identity disorder (DID) has become unable to lead a normal life, because each of his 10 different personalities is so different.

Even if you don’t know too much about dissociative identity disorder, aka multiple personality disorder, you’ve probably seen films like ‘Me, Myself and Irene‘, or M Night Shyamalan’s ‘Split‘, both of which feature protagonists with DID. The rare psychiatric condition develops in early childhood as a result of severe trauma, and leads to the development of two or more identities that control a person’s behavior at different times. It can lead to gaps in memory and can affect a person’s ability to connect with reality and other people.

Woman Shares Her Body with 15 Different Personalities Who Can Each Take Control at Any Time

Kimi Sands suffers from a very strange condition called Dissociative Identity Disorder (DID), otherwise known as multiple personality disorder. The 23-year-old, from Cardiff, Wales, shares her body with 15 different personalities any one of which can take control at any time.

In the movies, people suffering from DID are often portrayed as dangerous criminals or serial killers. Not Kimi, though. None of her personalities make her do anything horrible. At worst, she and her partner Chris Lee need to buy Christmas presents for all 15, making the holidays more expensive for them.

“Including myself, there are 16 individuals to get presents for,” said Kimi. “These can be anything from alcohol for the older personalities to teddies for kids.” That’s right, the personalities all belong to different age groups. Among them are 22-year-old Japanese chef Satou, 17-year-old exercise addict Fiona, and four-year-old twins Jack and Safyer. There’s also a 23-year-old Yorkshire man, Ashy, and a party-loving bisexual, Theodore, aged 15.
